Sam Newfield gives Ed Wood a run for his Worst Director Ever title. This movie is so bad I don't know where to begin. I agree with the previous reviewer on the $17.95 budget but I hope they didn't pay the organist for that 'god awful' music score. That eerie electric organ music is more irritating than a dentist's drill. The acting is pretty bad all around with Sid Melton, embarrassingly unfunny as the comedy element, as the worst of the bunch. Sheila Ryan as the wrongly accused's fiancée, shows virtually no emotion in his situation. Richard Emory comes off best as her fiancée, probably because he has very few scenes. The story wasn't that bad and a better director could have made this a hit. I got this in a set titled Forgotten (Film) Noir and now I know why it was forgotten. If it wasn't for that terrible organ music I'd recommend it for laughs!
